Houston Trucking Accidents
According to reports from U.S. Department of Transportation, the number of motor vehicle fatalities in Texas, including those involving large commercial trucks, has been on the rise since 2008. A safety program conducted each year by the Texas State Troopers has revealed that nearly 30% of Texas’ commercial trucks have defects that are potentially life-threatening and pose significant safety risks to other drivers on the road. With Houston’s vital role as a major industry hub, the number of commercial trucking accidents in Harris County is particularly high.
The large size and weight difference between commercial trucks and regular passenger vehicles means that trucking accidents often lead to more serious injuries and sometimes death. When a person is injured in a trucking accident, there are many factors that go into establishing liability for injuries. If the accident is caused by the negligence of a company or other third party, that party may be held liable for the accident. Establishing liability can be complex in these types of cases, which is why you need the help of an experienced Houston personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in a trucking accident.
At The Krist Law Firm, P.C., our attorneys have 27 years of experience handling commercial trucking accident lawsuits. Our skilled and talented team of Houston personal injury attorneys understand how to investigate this type of case and how to build the strongest possible argument for compensation.
Maritime Accidents in the Houston Area
Maritime accidents that occur offshore or while working dockside are often subject to different laws than accidents that occur on land. Injuries sustained in an accident that occurs offshore or dockside may be covered by a complex set of federal maritime laws, also known as admiralty law. While the oil and natural gas industries are a vital part of the Texas economy, offshore drilling accidents are an unfortunate reality for workers in those environments. Offshore drilling workers in the Gulf of Mexico are often faced with dangerous working conditions. Some of the most common types of accidents include:
Blowouts resulting in fires or explosions
Workers falling from a height onto the deck of a rig or into the ocean
Unsecured tools or objects falling and hitting workers
Improperly maintained equipment failure
Leaking of toxic chemicals or fumes
Broken cables falling and hitting workers
Pipe tongs breaking or malfunctioning
Helicopter or boat accidents while traveling to or from a platform
These types of accidents can result in serious injuries and sometimes death. If you have been injured in an offshore accident, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer or a third party that caused your injuries through negligence. Your financial future will depend on the outcome of your lawsuit, which is why it is important that you hire a Houston maritime accident lawyer who knows the details of the various maritime laws that might apply to your case. At The Krist Law Firm, P.C., our skilled and knowledgeable attorneys have handled virtually every type of offshore accident, and they will fight for the maximum compensation in your case. We have a record of success, including an award of $15,120,000 for a man who suffered major injuries after a mooring cable snapped and struck his head.
Product Liability Cases in Houston
Dangerous or defective products can lead to severe injuries. Product liability cases are incredibly complicated. Establishing liability can be tricky, especially when multiple parties are involved because it can be difficult to prove whether a defect occurred due to a flaw in manufacturing, design, lack of warning, or a combination of these. If you’ve been injured by a dangerous or defective product, it is essential that you hire an experienced Houston product liability attorney who understands the law in this area and the evidence that is necessary to hold the responsible parties accountable for your losses.
